Pretoria - Murdered businessman Wandile Bozwana was a North West businessman, ANC funder and former provincial treasurer.

He was very outspoken and took the provincial government to court on numerous occasions.

In September he won a court case to attach a state bank account – with a R30m balance and 44 vehicles belonging to the province’s public works department – over a disputed payment.

The bank account, known as the revenue fund, consisted of the exchequer account – used to receive the province’s equitable share from Treasury for investment purposes – and the paymaster and general account – used for the department to attend to its daily operations.

The provincial government took the case to the constitutional court and argued that the court orders attaching the provincial bank account and 44 vehicles had a negative effect on service delivery, and a section of the State Liability Act prohibits that such orders be granted.

Bozwana was very vocal about business dealings in the North West and had organised businessmen to complain about the type of treatment they were getting. They accused North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo of enriching himself, interfering in government procurement and influencing the awarding of tenders to those close to him.
